Nice Find!

We stopped by Papa Bob's on our way to the Cricket Wireless Amphiteater and were definitely not disappointed. Nice little hideaway with excellent barbeque. I have to say they do have a dish called the "Ultimate Destroyer", which is about 4.5 pounds of meat plus some side dishes. If one person... read more

Papa Bob's is a hidden gem just east of Bonner on K-32. It has the feel of a small-town diner, with a casual, friendly atmosphere. We almost always are visited at our table by one or both of the owners. But the food is the real reason to stop; their burnt ends are my favorite--simply amazing. And we always look... More

We had take out toward the end of the day and maybe we got the ends of everything... But the taste was just not there. I had the beef plate with a couple of sides. The beef was not seasoned at all, no rub in this that I could taste. The sides were OK but not extradinary. Tasted like a... More

Had a great experience at Papa Bob's on our very first visit. Employees are very friendly and took the time to go over the menu. Papa Bob came out and introduced himself to us and we had a nice conversation. The restaurant is cute with old fashion bar stools and nice tables and chairs. It is also very clean. My... More

I would say this is a hidden gem if you are looking for some good bbq and an open menu for other items to satisfy the rest of the family. The prices were reasonable and we didnt have to fight a big crowd on the weekend. Owners were nice and checked in on us at least 3 times. Definitely a... More

The service here was great! Very friendly, mom and pop feel. We added a pin to the map showing where we are from. Barbeque is everywhere in this area so to get a good review, you need to be top notch. We did not take the challenge but each of the 3 of us ordered a different style of sandwich.... More

Good food. Great service. Good price. They have alot of choices of smoked meats. I have never had a smoked hamburger before it is different. All the meat was really juicy. The staff was really friendly. The owner was there and went around and talked to every table.

We've eaten at this place many times over the years. The service is excellent. The food is very good. BBQ is not cheap and I think a lot of people go in expecting a Walmart or McDonalds price.

Enjoyable first visit today. Turkey & pulled pork were delicious. We ordered 2 platters with 2 choices of meat each, & shared with our 2 young kids. The meat portions were a little small, but no one left hungry. Ordering carefully & skipping soft drinks, a family of 4 can get out for about $30 to $35. Platters with 2... More

We were in the area for a weekend family get together. We decided to order take-out. We bought three pounds of burnt ends, beans, potato salad and cole slaw. It was so good. The burnt ends were wonderful- tender-no fat. The service was fantastic. We'll have Papa Bob's qgain
